Location establishes services directly in the Middle East PORTLAND, Ore. - OIA Global, a leading worldwide logistics, packaging, and materials sourcing provider, has announced the opening of its first office in the Middle East, operating in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The expansion of OIA's global network is a major benefit to clients looking to further optimize their supply chain. Dubai has developed a strong maritime presence and sits among the top ten busiest container ports in the world. The city has grown exponentially as a transport hub over the past decade thanks to the committed innovation of Dubai's government. "Some call it the 'City of Superlatives' because it is so full of possibilities, especially within supply chain management," said Herve Laguigner, OIA Global Regional Director. "Our presence here will open new possibilities and simplify processes for our customers." The new office is located in the heart of business and logistics activity in the United Arab Emirates. It is situated close to Dubai International Airport (DXB) and the site of EXPO 2020, a festival supporting and encouraging human ingenuity. "We now have a presence where we'll be among the first 3PL providers in the region to offer full service in logistics, packaging, optimization, and materials," said Claus Rasmussen, OIA Global Managing Director, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. "Customers we serve in automotive and energy sectors as well as fashion verticals can be assured of end-to-end service here while shortening their supply chain."
